How equal are home schoolers compared to regular high school graduate

 Hi, can anyone guide us as to whether home schooling programs would be acceptable to enter Medicine? Do we have to attend a local school at all? Do we have to do NAPLAN/HSC/Year 12 final exam? Would it be equal with ATAR?

Thanks in advance guys.


Welcome on board :)

There's usually more than one way to solve problems! In the case of medicine your best bet is probably to look up the course requirements for wherever you want to study medicine and see if you can meet the requirements with bridging units or tafe courses.  You only have to do the tests if you want to, and if you want to do the yr12 exams then you probably need to do at least yr12 at some school.

Sorry I can't be more specific than that, have had a look at alternate paths into engineering for eldest but not medicine so don't know what requirements would be.  Hopefully someone else knows.  Good luck! :D

Thanks bek.:)

Would like to meet up with other home schoolers in Great Southern area. Anyone?
